    There's systemadm, provided by the package systemd-ui

    https://apps.fedoraproject.org/packages/systemd-ui

    The command-line tools are the preferred method though.

    Thank you! I am slowly getting use to the command line options. "Man systemctl" is a bit overwhelming to start with.

    If you use KDE then there is "kcm_systemd" a control module for systemctl, journald and logind.

    Screenshots here:

    It is much better than "systemd-ui".

    I don't use KDE (I use Xfce), but I love a bunch of their utilities: KDE, Krusader, and digikam (that might not be K), so I probably have all the utilities loaded up already to run it in Xfce. Krusader sure is ugly looking, but I get past it really fast becasue it is so extraordinarily useful.

    Thank you!

    You just install it with yum. The control module then becomes integrated into the KDE control panel in the "System administration section" and is simply called "Systemd".

    Oh, I always thought that Gnome is the GUI for systemd...

    $ sudo yum install kcm_systemd

    You can start it from a terminal like:
    $ kcmshell4 kcm_systemd

    I tried it in LXDE. It works. But it won't show up in the Desktop menus because there is no KDE-folder there.

    Gnome has nothing to do with systemd besides the fact that they take advantage of some systemd features. They still support ConsoleKit based distros even though CK have been abandonware for some years. Same story with KDE.

    The KDE "systemd" control module is a showcase for how good systemd is for desktop developers; for the first time in Linux history is it possible to develop a distro-agnostic GUI for controlling such basic aspects as which daemons to start at boot.

    Soon there will be GUI's to the system logs that aren't just a glorified "less" with windows decorations, but have the actual ability to make powerful log filtering.
    This is possible because for the first time since Linux became a distro, there is a stable and documented API for accessing log files.

    development of systemd-ui obviously has stopped. Its not part of the actual F25.

    "a stable and documented API for accessing log files"

    Well, for about half a century one could simply type:
    "tail -f /var/log/messages". What on earth was unstable about that?

    thats right. journalctl becomes slower each day.

    Yes, there's a gtk based gui in a copr repo. It looks useful. Two commands to get it:
    Code:
    $ sudo dnf copr enable nunodias/systemd-manager
    
    $ sudo dnf install systemd-manager
    dd_wizard
